Water damage at clinic


Flat roof, snow melt, blocked roof drain (ice), equals water into the walls of the waiting room and the dialysis unit.  First three chairs of dialysis treatment are out of action. From 9 chairs down to 6.

So we are running temporary evening shift.  Three patients from morning and three from afternoons.  Tough scramble to schedule the nurses. Many patients do not drive themselves. Some are driven by the Red Cross. Some are in wheelchairs.

I was asked to come Friday evening, a scramble from the first alignment of patient changes.  Because I have runs On Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, I can only shift Friday.

This morning the infection control ruled on the third day of reconstruction that negative pressure in the small work area was not well enough sealed (seam taping, etc.). No work done this morning.  The original work estimate was a ludicrous two days.  A nurse and I discussed a betting pool on number of days to complete fixes.  We both want the one month square.

My run today was quiet, I napped.
